“Un rhum goûté chez Rum Depot à Berlin. La bouteille est quasiment vide. Nez Caroni en plein, pneus, pétrole et goudron avec un côté frais étonnant mais très agréable. La bouche a une attaque franche avec les notes d’atelier mécanique d’abord, puis vient la fraîcheur (menthol ?) sentie au nez, les fruits en dernier. La finale est un peu pâle en comparaison, il reste surtout des fruits et un boisé peu présent avant. Le verre vide présente un très bel équilibre entre les fruits et l’atelier mécanique. Un très beau Caroni, dommage que sa finale soit un peu faible.”

“Very nice on the nose with a nice long lingering aftertaste. On the palate the reduction becomes noticeable in an A/B comparison versus FP Caronis from 98. All in all quite enjoyable - somewhat an easy sipper (when it comes to Caronis) which still delivers on the dirty notes and presents a round profile.”

“Definitiv das Highlight des Online-Bristol-Tastings. Ein nicht zu glatt gebügelter 98er, komplex, leicht dreckige Noten, Alkohol gut eingebunden.”
